korean in space!

In space, Korea will be united. Scientist Ko San will soon become South Korea's first astronaut, riding along on a Russian Soyuz rocket to the International Space Station where he will conduct experiments: First Korean astronaut to take soil into space.

He was selected from among 36,000 applicants to represent his country his space. At press conference this week, Ko said he plans to bring soil from each side of the divided Korean peninsula and mix them together in space during his flight. One Korea, my friends. I don't think the soil-mixing is part of the planned experiments, but hey, it's a nice gesture.
